    Very instructive. re my game against Wang - would my opponent play Qc5 - i would be truly sorry i exchanged on f3 and started unbalancing the position.

    How tough was your sixth game?

    Today's results.
    One positive development, there seemed to be no obvious cases of cheating.

    That is what I like to see a good black Sicilian Defence game.

    My Loss to Igor is very instructive. The analysis accurately highlights my mistakes. I must say the mistakes are rather typical of my play. Sacrificing the exchange was way better than defending passively. But I wanted to ''hold on'' rather than be material down.
    Game against Cannon is instructive as well. I obviously saw the queen sacrifice coming, but could not be bothered to analyze the position arising afterwards. Would I think for 10 secs, I would pick Nh4 with a winning position. To sum up both games, I like being material up and dislike being material down way too much + lazy to work at the board.


    I must say that overall - quality of Alexei's annotations (not just for my games but for all) is extremely high! It is a combination of excellent analysis + great explanations. So its suitable for players of all levels!

    Amazing to see in Goldenberg vs Baron analysis ideas such as 9... Qf4 in the Slav Defense (in effect) already known by masters
    of the yester year such as the great Hose Raul Capablanca and to a lesser extent Reuben Fine!

    The idea is also known to Baron (I have also tried to Qg6 theme previously) but I decide to go passive. However Qa5+ - i should have definitely played!
